By Prof. Mackey Hill 
In Korea the UN forces have 
launched an offensive behind ter- 
riffic artillery barrages along a 
55 mile front. For sometime now 
it has been rumored that an enor- 
mous Communist attack was in 
the making. This could be a phase 
of the reported change in military 
objectives that have recently been 
adopted in UN Korea policy. "Op- 
eration Killer" some have dubbed 
it. Rather than attempt to free 
and unify Korea the UN forces are 
trying to prove to the Communist 
forces that aggression is too cost- 
ly to play arounc with. 

There has been a noticeable 
quieting of the US demands for 
the application of sanctions against 
Red China or "limited war" against 
Red China. Fear is that if such 
a policy is pushed too far China 
will bo unalterably driven into 
Russian hands. Apparently there 
are developments that indicate 
that a negotiated settlement in 
Korea is in the offing. But if set- 
tlement is by negotiations the UN 
is trying to establish this point 
that Communist intervention will 
bring neither territorial nor poli- 
tical gains. 

The recent military action has 
been so costly that one of the val- 
leys was renamed "Death Valley." 
This indicates that the UN forces 
could stop (a little below parallel 
38) what ever the Reds chose to 

Four months ago Russia sug- 
gested a conference of the Big 
Four. Russia has been particularly 
interested in stopping the rearma- 
ment of Germany. Consequently 
she wants it high on the list for 
discussion when or if the confer- 
ence comes. Deputies of the Big 
Four are meeting now in Paris. 
They are trying to agree on a list 
of subjects that all approve of 
discussing at a full dress confer- 
ence. The first rounds have not 
be^n a demonstrated success. 

The West insist that discussions 
be on such things that are actually 
causes of international tension in 
Europe, such as armed forces in 
Russia, in East Germany and in 
fact in all the satellite countries of 
Europe. Furthermore these things 
should be on the agenda: Austrian 
peace settlement, and German un- 
ity and peace settlement Russia 
seems to acquiesce in including the 
Japanese question but she may 
try to get China seated in the con- 
ference — Red China that is. Rus- 
sion deputy Gromyko broke the 
Russian agreements regarding ac- 
tion in the preliminary conference 
to keep talk down to a minimum 
and stick to business, instead he 
launched into an hour and, half 
harangue against the West. 

General Ike Eisenhower has at- 
last announced the names of the 
European and American officers 
that will compose his staff. They 
are British, French, Italian and 
American Army and Navy men. It 
will be another proof to Russian 
eyes that the West is prepared and 
preparing to resist their aggres- 
sion wherever they may choose 
to strike. Or best of all, we hope, 
a hint to them to behave and co- 
operate for peace. 

Final Play Plans 
Being Completed 
Says Lucy Clark 

Miss Lucy Clark, dramatics in- 
structor reports that the final ar- 
rangements in settings and cos- 
tuming for "Whatsoever Ye Sow" 
are now being completed. 

To be given both Friday and 
Saturday nights, March 16 and 17, 
the drama stars Cliff and Louise 
Ralphs in the title role of Stephen 
and Rebecca. 

The young prince, Stephen, is a 
haughty man, powerful and 
wealthy, but refuses to show mer- 
cy on his debtors. His attitudes 
are changed, however, after a 
tragic accident. Rebecca's disdain 
ful attitude toward Stephen is 
changed later to only tenderness 
and sympathy. 

There are ten supporting phar- 
acters in the play. 

Sponsored by Actorators, GFC 
dramatics club, the play is sched- 
uled to begin at 8:00 o'clock both 
nights. It is the second major 
dramatics production of the year.

ahead, with new plans and 
ideas for the Crescent, it look- 
ed like a long year with a

By Betty May Street 

"Only the life tfiat is lived for 
Christ really counts." We all wrini 
our fives' to count; we all want to 
be able to look back when death 
is approaching and Say "I've done 
my best." 

As the first sentence implies, the 
only life that counts is the one liv- 
ed for Christ. Many people make 
the error of supposing that it is 
all right to wait until they are 
older to begin making their life 
count. How wrong they are! There 
is no better time than during our 
young years to begin, making our 
lives count for Christ. 

v7e must make sure our life's am- 
bition is worthy. Is it our matin 
aim to serve Christ and then make 
a living besides that? His service 
should be of primary importance. 

In preparing for our life's call- 
ing, we must keep the glory of our 
calling in view at all times and 
refuse to be sidetracked along any 
line, however worthy it may seem. 
Neve'r take God's second-best. 

Sometimes God calls us, but does 
not lead definitely for quite some 
time. We must be patient and wait 
fbr His guidance. He will lead 
clearly and pointedly when tie 
time comes. "For the vision is yet 
for an appointed time . . . though 
it tarry, wait for it; because it will 
surely come, it will not tarry." 
Habakkak 2:3. 

Then, finally, as God leads, we 
must be willing to follow His hand 
as it directs us. Sometimes we 
will go out as Abraham did, not 
nowing where we are going, but 
God knows. 

Someone once said that "the fu- 
ture lies blank before young 
people, ready to receive what they 
choose to write on its page. If they 
could but see the possibilities of 
their choice, as clearly as they 
will see them some day, there 
would be fewer wasted mornings 
of life and fewer gloomy sunsets." 

We as young people are making 
our choices now. Only the life 
that is lived for Christ counts.

Fever . . . Flowers * . . 
Spring in General 
Fades in Snow 

I awoke with a start. What was 
the matter? Brrrr — it was cold! I 
got out to turn up the heat atnd 
on my way back to my nice warm 
bed I made the mistake of looking 
out the window. Instead of green 
grass and yellow daffodils I saw 
— Snow! Yes, yards and yards of 
cold, white wet snow and more 
coming all the time. 

"Why," I said, "does this have 
to happen? Now I can't dig for 
angleworms and I can't go bare- 
footed! And I just pressed all my 
spring clothes and besides that I 
had a good case of spring fever 

Oh, well, ignore it and maybe 
it'll go away. But how can you 
ignore a sizzling snowball when it 
hits you right where you feel it? 
That one and several more sent 
me to class on a dead run (first 
time since vacation) but as I got 
to the Ad building the "Grandad- 
day" of all snowballs (very much 
resembling the bottom of a snow- 
man) settled right on my head. By 
the time I tad quieted all the birds 
and set the Ad building straight 
again tfiie snow had begun melting 
out of my ears, eyes and mouth. 

Still singing "In the Good Old 
Summertime" and wringing water 
and snow from my hair and 
clothes, I made my way to class 
only 49 minutes late. 

The rest of the morning went 
along all right except for 51 more 
cruisin' bruisin' snowballs and my 
face washed 4 more times. I guess 
everyone thought it was dirty but 
it isn't now. In fact its so red 
and sore you catf hardly recognize 

Well, I had decided by this time 
that the least I could dd was to 
appear cheerful and gay about the 
weather, ao smiling happily I 
watched the thousands of little 
wet flakes coming down to make 
my life more miserable. 

The night wouldn't have been 
so bad if things hadn't gone to the 
extreme. I didn't mind the snow- 
balls; I laughed when the shovel- 
ful went down my back) I grinned 
when they rolled me in it, but when 
the fellows decided to build a 
snowman with me in the middle I 
began to resent their harmless lit- 
tle fun. But there was nothing I 
c6uld do! Three hours later my 
new friend departed when some- 
one kicked us and broke, him all 
to pieces. 

Next morning I had thawed con- 
siderably just in time to see the 
sun and blue sky above me. Heav- 
ing a dripping wet sigh of relief 
I decided that I'd go to class again 
that morning. 

Oh, I'm so glad the snow's melt- 
ing — now I can welcome spring 
again! The sun feels so good and 
the flowers are trying to recooper- 
ate. It all seems like a bad dream 
— all that snow — but these bruises 
prove that snowballs are mighty 
good weapons! 

Well, the snow is over . . . think 
I'll go dig f6r angleworms . . . 
oops! What's that? Oh, NO, NO! 
Tell me it isn't!!-. Oh, it's snoW- 
ing again. I'm taking the first 
dog train to The Thousand Island! 


In case no one guesses who 
writes this, I'll take a guess and 
say its I. Afay I have the prize 
now, Betty May?

Killjoys Sfdp Seliizo's Snowballing; Death 
Caused by Tourniquet Fun; Celebrated 

Dear Uncle Dudley: 

I have failed to write you for 
several months or at least it seems 
to have been <juite a while. It has 
been sntiwing for the last few 
days and snowballing has been

dow glass in our window and could 
you tell the folks to send me 
money for a new pair of glasses? 
Several people didn't like it when 
I threw snowballs at them and fold 
me to quit putting rocks in them 
but you meet killjoys everywhere.

contact was made with the floor 
again I was flat on my back so 
being resourceful I immediately 
started to apply artificial respira- 
tion and after some time during 
which I was often at the point of 
giving up in despair, my efforts 
were rewarded — I could percieve 
signs of life returning to my ap- 
parently lifeless body. With great 
joy I redoubled my efforts and 
was soon able to stagger out of 

thought that something had ex- { the door and fall helplessly down

YFC Office Sends 
Revival Reports 
Of 1950 Evangelists 

The following report was sent 
out from the Youth fdr Christ In- 
ternational office in Chicago: 

The successful return of mass 
evangelism and the rise of 32- 
year-old Dr. Billy Graham as 
America's foremost evangelist 
marked 1950 as one of religion's 
great 12-month periods in the 20th 
century, a survey released in Jan- 
uary by Dr. Robert A. Cook of 
Chicago, president of Youth for 
Christ International, indicated. 

The annual report of the six-year 
old Youth for Christ movement 
revealed that its 22 evangelists 
spoke to 7,500,000 people in 1950. 
Of these, 134,463 were converted 
to a personal faith in Christ, with 
some reports still to come. 

Graham, first vice-president of 
Youth for Clirist and a key man in 
its growth since 1944, drew 
throngs 6f 50,000 at Boston, 
Massachusetts, 45,000 at the Rose 
Bowl iri Pasadena, Calif., 40,000 
in Columbia, S. C, 31,000 in Min- 
neapolis, Minn., 28,000 at Portland, 
Ore^-24,0fod at Atlanta, Ga . and 
20,000 at Chattanooga, Tenn. 

He teamed with Cliff Barrows of 
Greenville, S. C, vice-president at 
large, in campaigns which drew 
an estimated 3£5(f,()00 people, with 
75,000 converts. 

The year also produced the 
greatest campaign since Billy Sun- 
day drew 1,500,000 people to New 
York in 1922. The site Was Port- 
land, Ore., when the Graham team 
saw 632,000 in attendance in six 
weeks under the direction of Dr. 
Frank Phillips of Portland, Ore., 
YPd. NiHe thousand responded to 
the invitation to profess faith in 

Greatest revival response, how- 
ever, came from Korea. Dr. Bob 
Pierce of Fdrfland", Ore., saw 25- 
OOd converts respond during a 
nine-week tour made of Korea 
just Before the war started. 
Crowds reached as high as 70,- 
000 people, and averaged 16,000.

The Youth for Christ "Operation 
Evangelism" shunted 100 teams of 
seminary students and pastors to 
15 countries of Eurdpe and to Ja- 
pan and Okinawa in the summer of 
1950 where <a million people were 
preached to and 16,000 decisions 

In releasing the 1950 reports Df. 
Cook stated: 

"Youth for Christ faces the 
greatest single opportunity any 
group of young men ever have fac- 
ed since time began — the chance 
to reach our generation with a mes- 
sage of hope and faith in Christ 
as the answer to the problems of 
a sin-weary world. In 1951 we 
have dedicated ourselves to win 
one million people to Christ. The 
wheels of our Million Souls Cru- 
sade are whirring in the 62 coun- 
tries in which we have rallies. We 
plan, under God, £o Send 250 teams 
to those countries to conduct 2,000 
evangelistic campaigns." 

Youth for Christ was Started in 
1944. Graham was the movement's 
first paid employee when Dr. Tor- 
rey M. Johnson of Chicago, found- 
er and first president, stepp'ed out 
to get it going. The movement is 
interdenominatiorf and non-sec- 

bones including my neck. 

Sorrowfully I wish to tell you 
that my funeral will be celebrated 
tomorrow, not caused by my fall 
but by a friend trying to stop the 
bleeding of a wound, incurred 
while shaving by the use of a tour- 
niquet around my neck.

Crumbling Bricks 
Speak Experiences 

By Bonnie 

A crumbling brick wall with 
shadows of past tangled ivy stood 
humble before the figure in white. 
Given voice it told this stoty: 

"Once long ago through my 
heart walked the future -my chil- 
dren working for a tomorrow's 
world. Those that one day be- 
came leaders spent their days at 
my feet listening to wonderous 

The wind blew back faint echoes 
of Voices and laughter from the 
past as the speaker went on fond- 
ly, "They were all different — Some 
came hesitantly; some came with 
purposeful step. I hope they all 
left with greater vision ... I tried 
to help them." 

Then with a twinkle the voice 
recalled, "At times they tried my 
patience. Many a time I was 
caught in snow-ball battles — but I 
loved them just the same. All was 
not play, however, for in my 
house they learned tasks . . . 
though at times ihey were reluct- 

"My existance would have been 
useless if it had not been for the 
faithful servants that aided me. 
Most of them sacrificed that my 
children would have the best 

Here they learned to lead use- 
ful Christian lives for they loved 
the Owner of this place. But they 
are gone now— it gets rather quiet 
and lonely," sighed the speaker. 

The white figure said, "Well 
done, good and faithful servant" 
and called two robed workmen. 
Pointing to the ivy-fligreed college 
wall he said, "Here, we will use this 
for a cornerstone — "

Graham's Program 
Picked as lops 

"The Hour 6f Decision," Evan- 
gelist Billy Graham's thirty min- 
ute Sunday broadcast, has been 
given the highest rating in the his- 
tory of religious broadcasts, by 
the Hooper-Neilson Aiidience Rat- 

According to a letter sent out 
from the Billy Graham Evangel- 
istic Association in Minneapolis, 
the program was given a 3.4 rat- 
ing. It ranks in listening audience 
with many top secular shows. The 
letter written by Rev. Graham, 
said, ''I thought you would like to 
know. . . . We are overwhelmed 
and deeply grateful." 

The letter also stated that con- 
gressmen, governors, senators, 
movie stars, news commentators, 
and thousands of others of every 
walk of life have sent telegrams, 
letters and cards expressing their 
"appreciation, inspiration, and 
blessing that 'The Hour of Deci- 
sion' brings every Sunday." 

Billy Graham reports that they 
have signed for an additional 
thirteen weeks on the air, because 
they believe "this call to America 
in her most crucial hour is desper- 
ately needed."

Besides swelling the hip-pocket

sum (which by the way we heard 
was going to be turned over to the 
MAA to help retire its debt — bless 
their hearts) the tournament ful- 
fills a true purpose which cannot 
be measured in money, helping the 
kids up the often times hard road 
of a true sportsman. They had 
something to fight for. It means 
something to those young ball 
players whether they take home 
a golden statue or not. But since 
there are never enough to go 
around, some must go without. It 
takes something to clap and yell 
when the trophy is being awarded

the GF tourney is a good place to

George that a curve is more than 
optical illusion. The new bats are 
supposedly flexible whip action

them). Anyone that can flex one 
of those pieces of wood on a base- 
ball won't have to tear around the 
bases. Let's hope that they are a 
bit more flexible than last year's

GF Hoopmen Win 
Over Multnomah 

The Quaker hoopmen turned 
in one of their most decisive wins 
February 20, when they rolled over 
Multnomah, 68-45.' 

After three minutes of very cold 
play, Coach Bales put in the sub- 
stitutes. They played three more 
minutes and narrowed the 6-2 gap 
to 7-6. Then the varsity returned 
to the lineup and began to hit 
with deadly accuracy, rolling up 
a 31-18 halftime lead. 

Substitute forward Jeny Carr, a 
freshman, played much of the 
game and poured in 16 points, his 
first scoring in conference games. 

Scoring honors were taken by 
Frank Hannibal of Multnomah 
with 25. Nigel Shockey made 23 
for the victors.

'Drillers' Clinch Metropolitan League 
By Subduing Quaker Crew at Reed 

The Oregon Dental School cinch- 
ed the Metropolitan league cham- 
pionship, subduing a scrappy but 
unlucky Quaker crew 51-42 at 
Reed college last Friday night. 

A swisher from just outside the 
key by speedy guard Verne Mar- 
tin, began the scoring for the 
Balesmen, who started in true 
"would be champions" fashion, 
running up an early 8-2 lead. But 
this proved to be their only lead 
of the evening. 

The Dentists soon found the 
range and led by forward Williams 
closed the gap quickly and went 
into the lead. The GFC'ers tied it 
up at 11 all, but the Dentists pull- 
ed ahead for a 23-20 halftime 

Aiming at a comfortable mar- 
gin, the cavity-fillers poured 
through four buckets in a row at 
the start of the second half to 

Black Night Seen 
For Bales' Crew 

February 24 was a very black 
night for the Quaker basketball- 

On this Saturday ,the local crew 
journeyed to Portland, and lost a 
68-39 encounter with Reed. 

As is typical of the Griffins, they 
were "high" for the game. After 
getting off to a fast start, they 
were never overtaken. 

Guards Green ana Horracks 
spelled the Quaker doom. In the 
early part of the contest these 
boys consistently hit twenty or 
thirty foot set shots. 

By halftime Reed had built up 
a 33-20 advantage. The Balesmen 
thought they would still have a 
good chance, but the Griffins sank 
three field goals in the first min- 
ute of the second half. After that, 
Reed had things pretty much its 
own way. 

Nigel Shockey led the scoring 
with 18 points. Jacobs and Hor- 
racks each dumped in 15 for the 

Quakerettes Lose 
To Education Girls 

The Quakerettes were over-pow- 
ered 31-25 by the Oregon College 
of Education varsity in a hard 
fought game played on the OCE 
floor, March 1. 

The GFC team took the lead in 
the first few minutes of the play- 
ing time, but OCE recovered the 
lead position and held it for the 
rest of the game. The first quarter 
ended favoring OCE 11-9. During 
the second quarter the OCE squad 
widened the margin by an addi- 
tional 7 counters to increase their 
lead 18-9. In the fourth quarter 
the Quakerettes narrowed the gap 
to 1 point, making the score 26-25 
with four minutes left in the game. 
Oregon College of Education pulled 
ahead again to win by a 6 point 

Center forward, Alice Hodson 
sank 12 counters for the GFC'ers, 
out-shooting OCE's McKenzie by 
one basket. Gladys Engle sacked 
up 8 points and Nancy Foley pour- 
ed in 5 scores. Although not mak- 
ing many points herself, Foley 
showed real team work in feeding 
the ball to the other forwards. 

Judging from the statistics, the 
Quakerettes lost the game on free 
throws. Out of the twelve trips to 
the "charity" line only three tries 
were good. 

Ruth Harris, Margaret Weber, 
Dorothy Williams, and substitute 
Gay Foley played a real game in 

Your Fashion 


increase their lead to 11 points. 
The Quakers fought back, dimin- 
ishing that number .to five big 
points at one time. But the Den- 
tists always managed to keep out 
of striking distance and then 

Checked by a tight defense, con- 
sistent Quaker sharpshooter Nigel 
Shockey was held to nine tallies 
which led the Quaker scoring. 

The Dentist's forward Williams 
led the evening with 14 points fol- 
lowed by Phillips with 12. 

Grade School Boys 
Play in Thrillers 
For Ball Trophies 

The twelfth annual GF club 
grade school tournament came to 
a literal screeching halt last Sat- 
urday night in Hester Memorial 
gym, with the Class A trophy go- 
ing to Dallas and B award to 
Grande Ronde. 

In a thriller from the first tip, 
the Dallas graders eeked out a 
22-20 win over McMinnville. The 
half-time score gave the Mac boys 
a slim one point bulge, but the 
Dallas team came back in the sec- 
ond frame to snare the win. 

The Class B competition (those 
schools under 250 enrollment) saw 
the young hoopsters from Grande 
Ronde whip the Gervais grade 
school 33-15. Tolman, flashy 
GR guard, sagged the hemp for 
15 points to lead the triumphant 

In Consolation play, Willamina 
took the class A award by spank- 
ing Newberg 24-20. The Oregon 
State Deaf School took the class 
B consolation trophy from Dun- 
dee by a 21-27 win. 

Dean McNichols presented the 
trophies before an enthusiastic 
crowd of 300, who yelled their ap- 
proval of the young hoop-stars' 

holding down the opposing for- 
wards. The guards did a good job 
of recovering the ball from the 
back board and in checking OCE's 
attempted field goals. 

The local team is scheduled to 
tangle with OCE on March 13 on 
the home floor. Also they will 
play host to Linfield March 50. On 
March 10 the Quakerettes are slat- 
ed to play a return game with

Balesmen to Face 
Portland Cagers 

Tonight at 8 p. m. in Hester 
Memorial gymnasium, the GFC 
cagers wil face the Multnomah 
School of the Bible team from 
Portland. The visitors were pre- 
viously here on February 10, at 
which time they played against 
the Quaker JV squad in a prelim- 
inary tilt. The JV's were victor- 
ious by a 58-52 score. 

On Saturday the Balesmen will 
travel to the City of Roses where 
they will tangle with Concordia 
Jr. college in a Metropolitan lea- 
gue tilt. This is the final game of 
the season for the GFC squad, and 
it should find them eager to close 
with a victory. The Quakers top- 
ped the Lutherans 68-50 in the 
last meeting of the two clubs. 

If George Fox wins over Con- 
cordia, they will tie with Reed col- 
lege for second place in Metropoli- 
tan league standing, and if Oregon 
Medical should down Oregon Den- 
tal, the Medics will also be tied for 
the runner-up spot. The university 
of Oregon Dental school has al- 
ready won the league title.

ords show it possible to keep the 
organization running in the black.
